This can be done with DoS protection.

Also check out zone protection.

 

In general you apply broad zone protection and then use DoS protection to be more specific for specific IP or subnet.

@Kumasan,

Specifically within zone protection and DoS policies you are going to want to look at the Resources Protection tab.

@BPry,

             thanks for your reply .  in my opinion ,the maximum concurrent sessions in zone protection profiles  which is limit  the total number of session in this zone , not session  per ip . Is it correct or not ?

the maximum concurrent sessions in zone-protection are a total cumilative for the entire zone

in dos-protection the aggregate functions for all cumulative sources towards a single destination and the classified functions as a per source per destination limitation

@Kumasan,

Reaper already gave you the information you were looking for. 

I'm a big supporter of utilizing all of the possible scenarios when it comes to actually securing your network. If you have a reason to utilize zone protection you likely also have a reason to enabel DoS protection profiles. Zone Protection by nature will be very high-level protection as you have to set the limits within reason to not interupt normal traffic flow; with DoS profiles you can get way more granular and properly secure hosts instead of just the zone. I highly recommend utilizing both.
